Not Ready to Be a Dad? A Guide to Explore Your Options.

The words “You’re going to be a dad” or “I’m pregnant”, can trigger a rollercoaster of emotions and thoughts, especially if fatherhood wasn’t part of the plan. Maybe you feel like you’re too young, don’t make enough income, or maybe you just don’t feel emotionally ready. It’s completely normal to feel scared or unsure of what to do next.

Though you may feel alone during this situation, know you’re not alone. Other men have, along with their partners, experienced unplanned pregnancies and overcome them, and you can too.

Here are some simple steps you can follow to equip you with the information and support you need to navigate this situation with confidence.

Take a Deep Breath: You Have Options

  • Open Communication is Essential: Talk openly and honestly with your partner. Let her know your concerns and fears, and listen attentively to hers. Remember, you’re a team in this.
  • Knowledge is Power: Educate yourself about the different options available. Organizations like the Problem Pregnancy Center in Southfield, provide free options counseling, services, resources, and more to help you make informed decisions.
  • Consider Your Resources: Learning about your available options with specialized support can remove the heavy weight on your shoulders and build confidence.

Support Your Partner

Your strong support is invaluable to your partner. She will look to you for both support and compassion during this time. Here are some ways you can provide the positive support she needs: 

  • Respect Her Needs: Encourage her to schedule a free and confidential appointment at the Problem Pregnancy Center in Southfield, Michigan. We provide free pregnancy tests and free ultrasounds to confirm pregnancy and check its viability due to the frequency of natural miscarriage, pregnancy options counseling, and other no-cost resources
  • Be Present: Offer to accompany her to the appointment. This shows your commitment to walking through this journey together.

  • Listen to Her: She might be experiencing a mix of emotions, especially if this was an unplanned pregnancy for her too. Be a safe space for her to express her feelings without judgment and by responding calmly and respectfully.
